Reviews for this film from our members:
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: …a very silly movie with a game cast whose commitment is occasionally engaging…Depp and Bettany are like an English variation on Inspector Clouseau and Cato.
Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
Excerpt: The deliberately retro pseudo 60s music score by Mark Ronson and Geoff Zanelli for the most part sounds like a porn movie, which is appropriate, since the general attitude towards women is a little bit like a lecture on feminism by Bill O’Reilly at a wet t-shirt contest.
M. Enois Duarte @ High-Def Digest.com
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: Mortdecai is the stuff that inspires stipulations in wills, as in, “Have some basic decency on the event of my passing, and don’t let people bring up that one movie.”
Hugo Gomes @ Cinematograficamente Falando … [Portuguese]
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: A tiresome misfire that’s mortifying for all concerned…
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: This painfully unfunny spoof of teddibly British nonsense couldn’t be less amusing if it were actually calculated to be totally laugh-free.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: It’s quite terrible. Quite.
Nell Minow @ The Movie Mom
Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
Excerpt: Even silly, harmless, goofy films premised on mustaches jokes have limited mileage, though, and Mortdecai milks Depp’s snot mop for every laugh it can get and then some.
Nuno Reis @ Antestreia [Portuguese]
Excerpt: Numa época em que se consegue ver a mesma receita de filme todos os meses no cinema com títulos diferentes e a afirmar-se como o melhor filme do ano do género (não interessa qual), é bom variar ocasionalmente e ver algo saído dos anos 70 que sabe ser mau.
Francis Rizzo III @ DVDTalk
Excerpt: A loose, silly, but ultimately boring caper
Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: Arch, artificial comedy…a thoroughgoing disaster.
Sarah Ward @ Concrete Playground
Ron Wilkinson @ Monsters and Critics
Excerpt: Johnny Depp as an updated Baron Munchausen.
